'The book provides a very easy read, covering most of the main environmental issues that face humankind ... Unlike many other environmental texts, it uses abundant quotations which make interesting reading ... the book would be ideal as an introductory read for students who wish to embark on a degree in environmental science or for educated lay readers who have an interest in environmental issues. I will certainly recommend it to our prospective students as a book to read in the summer before joining one of our degree programmes ... a very enjoyable and interesting read.' Lewis A.

Sheila Alderman, OUGS Journal 'To the general reader concerned about the environment or willing to achieve a better understanding of the human dimensions of global change, I recommend reading this book.'
